Some hi-res lunar - 21 Feb

Despite the seeing being all over the place last night, some of these didn't turn out too bad. Done with the C8 and Altair GPcamV2 mono. https://i.imgur.com/Fx0mR2T.jpg https://i.imgur.com/IwVxKXt.jpg https://i.imgur.com/hnVOMk2.jpg https://i.imgur.com/mDzr8EN.jpg https://i.imgur.com/RiEvINO.jpg htt...

Re: M 108 and M 109.

Thanks Skybrowser. The diffraction spikes were just an experiment. They were not part of the original image and I've never done it since.

M42 in full moonlight

M42 imaged last night in full moonlight with the Altair Astro 102 ED-R, Starlight Xpress SXV H9-C and Altair Quadband filter. 10x300 secs + 5x600 secs. Not an ideal time for deep sky imaging but I was going rusty and it was a clear night! :D Also I wanted to try out an OAG I've had for some years no...

Jupiter and Saturn - 22 December 2020

Well I managed to capture Jupiter and Saturn either side of the conjunction but was clouded out on the day itself.

This from the 22nd with the C8 and Canon 1000D at prime focus.

Re: Old Mars from 2016

Nice one! :D

Brian, it was actually a Philips SPC900 NC. I also had (and still have in fact) the same cam with a mono chip).

Re: Mars - 28 November 2020

Thanks Bob, I'm quite pleased with that image. It's probably one of my best of the apparition even though the apparent diameter is shrinking now. No, I didn't see David's podcast. I was aware of it but something cropped up. So much depends on the seeing in planetary observation and imaging.
